Snagged this little beasty last weekend.
It needs a little work, but it already has the Acerbis tank and rear rack and bigger foot pegs, so it’s a trade off.
It’s the pure 90’s pink and purple decal Dr350.
It survived a gut wrenching 150 mile ride home on the second sketchiest tire I’ve ever ridden on, with at least one jet clogged in the carb.
It fits me pretty well, but the suspension needs to be dialed in for fat guy specs, and a wider seat and taller bars are in its future, but for the most part I’m pretty happy with it.
After tearing up the Roughhouse this summer on a dirt road, I’ve been itching to get something more durable to play around with for next years 50cc ride. This should be able to take the abuse.
The best part/ worst part is that it’s kickstart only. No electric start. Sure it has less parts to break, but kickstarting a hot motor at a redlight sucks bad. Oh well, run what you brung right?
I have an appointment Saturday to get a new 50/50 dual sport rear tire, and to have Carlisle Cycle go over the carb and cables and give it a once over to make sure it won’t try to kill me. It’s great to have people I can trust to work on bikes and scooters. It’s not like a car where you can have catastrophic failures and it’s just inconvenient.
Anyways… I’ll post more about it as it happens. Happy riding! Hope to see you out there.
